French company Agripolis is slated to open a 150,000-square-foot rooftop farm in 2020, hosting 2,000 pounds of crop each day.

Currently under construction in the south-west of the city, this urban oasis will span approximately 14,000 sq metres (150,695 sq feet) – also making it the largest urban farm in Europe.

With the plan to grow more than 30 different plant species, the site will produce around 1,000 kg of fruit and vegetables every day in high season. Tended by around 20 gardeners, they will also be using entirely organic methods.
